What our clients say!

I bought a house in Ferrybank through Heffernan Estates and I found the experience very easy and straightforward. I have been renting the house for the past 5 years and use Joanne Kent in Heffernans for an all in package. I find Joanne very efficient, trustworthy and very easy to deal with and I am very happy with the service

T Gleeson

I sold my house in Ferrybank through Heffernan Estate agents…. From the outset I was met by Joanne Kent with a very friendly and professional approach which was both positive and realistic in terms of the estimated price  for my property.    I was very pleased and within a few weeks the property was sold for a reasonable sum…. Everything went very smoothly and the whole process was completed a  in a timely manner without a hiccup.    I was so pleased I placed my late Dad’s property with her and again the house was sold within a few weeks… again everything went smoothly without a hitch and again in a timely manner……  I would definitely use Joanne’s services in the future as she proved to be very professional and efficient ….

We first contacted Heffernan’s in October 2019. Joanne was so accommodating to our situation and was very straight talking and a pleasure to deal with. As there were delays on our side, Joanne was very patient and communicated with the sellers on our behalf and we managed to get the keys of our first home in early 2020. While I dont see us moving, my first call and any recommendations I would make for buying or selling would be to Joanne and Heffernan’s. Thank you for everything.

Thanks so much again

Heffernan Estates have been managing my property on my behalf since late 2019. They have been very professional and reliable and any problem with the property/tenants were dealt with/rectified in a timely manner. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Heffernans.

I would like to express my appreciation for your help and professionalism when dealing with the sale of our house. Even during the restrictions with Covid I knew I could trust you to do your best to have viewings and as it turned out the sale was able to proceed in those difficult circumstances.
